Watching the sunrise

I’m sitting here with a cup of coffee watching the sunrise. One set of Christmas lights are still flashing, though very languidly.

Playing with the big boys’ toys

There’s a tractor outside my kitchen window. That means Doc is ‘working’. That’s his euphemism for playing with the big boys toys. We’re building a shed at our house at the farm. Doc has bought so many toys out here that we need somewhere to keep them out of the house. Hence, a shed – …

Go west young family, and avoid the traffic

We’re back on the farm. And after reading about the traffic heading north (or at least stuck on the Pacific Highway facing north), I’m glad we come this way. Heading west there were very few other cars on the road, and definitely no traffic jams.

Where is the best Carols by Candlelight?

Now that the Christmas haze has cleared, I hope everybody had a fabulous time. I’m sure I’ve mentioned, I love Christmas. The whole over priced, overblown, overcheery shebang. I even love Christmas carols. I went to my local Carols by Candlelight on 23 December. Well, it used to be my local when I lived there, …

A walk on the road to recovery

I went for a walk this morning. Nothing much to write about there you might think, but it’s the first walk I’ve done for quite a while. I won’t go into the whys, but I haven’t been doing much at all really.  I get up in the morning and walk the seven steps from my …

The trials and tribulations of dealing with Telstra

When does a band become a tribute band?

When does a band become a cover band? I ask this because I had another weekend away with the girls at a Day on the Green concert. It was a fabulous weekend – beautiful accommodation (Maple Cottage at Berrima), great company and brilliant Aussie rock bands. And of course our obligatory gourmet picnic. Except … …
